Hannon To Unleash The Power (5th October)

A catch up on a few of my selections of late.

In my post last Thursday I mentioned a few horses which disappointed but yes we all have losers even me haha. I did expect better of the William Haggas Frankel colt Mohaafeth on his second outing and took 3/1 the night before. 

Mohaafeth was up with the pace and took the lead a furlong out but looked a little one paced and could only manage third, I’m not sure what to think of that run but I guess we will see next timeout if something was wrong or just average. 

The Attorney was a late decision really and probably a bad one on my part. The money was down for the Charlie Hills Kodiac colt and I managed to get swept into the gamble, I looked at his last race when slowly away before making up ground but faded to finish out the places and thought I would give it a go. The Attorney was at least in with a chance but again faded to finish fifth. 

Last chance saloon and my last selection was the John Gosden Kingman filly TAWAHUB who didn't disappoint at Chelmsford. Tawahub was smartly away and always in the right place before taking it up and staying on gamely to win by half-a-length from Jacinth. I had a few quid on Tawahub each way at 11/2 and 5/1 so turned from a bad day to a good day. 

Saturday's selections were a bit of a wash out really as the rain came and Ascot was abandoned plus a few non runners to add to my disappointment. 

The only selection that ran was EMPEROR SUPREME who managed to finish third so no damage was done. 

One winner I gave on Twitter was CARLISLE BAY who I thought would come on for the run but managed to win at 7/1 on debut, the drift put me off so no bet for me. 

All caught up and no 2-year-old racing Sunday, so I will look ahead to a few trackers running Monday.

One tracker that came through was the John Gosden trained 3-year-old gelding ON GUARD, well I say John Gosden but actually with Gordon Elliott now and tries his hands at the jumping game. Even though I won’t be having a bet it will be interesting to see how the Invincible Spirit gelding takes to hurdles.

Yes, I know a hurdler and a 3-year-old what’s going on. SKY POWER is a tracker from last season and could still be worth keeping an eye on even at this late stage of the season. Sky Power cost 450,000 gns at the 2018 October Yearling Sales and is owned of course by the King Power Racing Team and trained by Richard Hannon. The Fastnet Rock colt is a full brother to Fastnet Tempest who was trained by William Haggas till 2018 and ran at a pretty decent level. Sky Powers debut was last November when staying on well to finish third, he was pretty keen at the start but warmed up to the task late on. I do worry why he hasn't been out since but I’m sure if still retaining his ability he will put up a good show against another nice looking colt in the name of Hydros who runs for Michael Stoute.

A 2-year-old race at last but my tracker is a newcomer which as you know i'm always a bit wary of. Mark Johnston has had a couple of 2yo debut winners of late so that gives me a bit more confidence here. The Frankel colt HARLEM SOUL cost 130,000 gns and is a half-brother to the Charlie Appleby gelding Ispolini who has ran to a decent level throughout his career. This looks a nice race to start and not even sure about the betting as I have written this early but I will have a small each way bet if prices allow. Good luck and stay safe.
